    A tornado emergency was declared for Oklahoma City on Friday as a large twister touched down, destroyed a Weather Channel vehicle and made a beeline for Oklahoma's largest city, where authorities pleaded with residents to seek shelter immediately.

    Severe weather warnings expected for Oklahoma, Arkansas, Alabama, Texas and even western Pennsylvania.

    Have friends that live in Oklahoma, hoping and praying that my friends are safe and so are their families. Some much tragedy and so sad about the loss of lots of lives. Also, have friends in the other states affected, praying they and their families are safe too.
    Praying that the storms calm and they stop, that no one else has to get hurt or pass on, due to the storms.

    I'm still waiting to hear from Pat Robertson about how God is sending these tornadoes to Oklahoma to punish all those evil Okies.

    We already have posters here claiming it was God's judgement on a gay pride parade.

    I just had imagery of a gay guy going "guilty!" as he was swept away by a twister.

    Good news in part at least. :hug: My very best wishes that your other friend and her children will be in touch soon and all is well with them too.

    This was posted after the first Oklahoma tornado however, it's still a helpful resource today given the twisters that tore through just yesterday. I suppose it's too soon for survivor lists to have come out so people can conduct a search by name for their loved one's.
